About my Blog
Perhaps you are wondering about my blogs name “Treea a Dryads Dreams”
Well Treea is what a special friend named me. Trees hold a very special and important place in my heart and role in my life.
A dryad (Δρυάς) is a tree nymph, that is a female spirit of a tree, in Greek mythology. They were believed by the ancient Greeks to inhabit the forests and featured in the legends and mythology of Ancient Greece. Dryads were minor goddesses of nature, specifically the forest, woods and groves. The Hamadryads were Tree Nymphs who were born bonded to a particular type of tree. The Dryads were therefore the patrons of forests and trees in general, and distinguished from the Hamadryads, who each inhabited each a particular tree. Because of this if the tree died, the hamadryad associated with it died as well. For these reasons, dryads and the Greek gods punished any mortals who harmed trees without first propitiating the tree-nymphs.
This blog is a journey through nature,its gifts, its lessons, its magic and not only nature’s but life’s magic, creativity, and adventures.
“Life is full of beauty. Notice it. Notice the bumble bee, the small child, and the smiling faces. Smell the rain, and feel the wind. Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams….”
My name is Gaia (Γαία) and I was born on the beautiful lush island of Kos, along the Aegean sea of Greece, where Hippocrates, the “father of medicine” was born. I am a Cultural Anthropologist, Hypnotherapist/Regression therapist specializing in pregnancy and childbirth. More importantly I am a writer (favorite being children’s stories), artist, dancer, nature dweller, photographer, traveler, dreamer, and creator. I love creativity…I love all nature, especially trees. One of my greatest joys is connecting people with nature in which I have spent most of my life in solitude contemplating and enjoying its wisdom, and empowering people to be their authentic selves, reconnecting them to their true essence and calling in life.
At the moment I am following my passion writing children’s stories for ages 0-100
“Lighthouses don’t go running all over an island looking for boats to save; they just stand there shining.”
